Partnership for Prescription Assistance Prepared to Help Tennessee Workers Hurt by Recession
Date:3/26/2009

To help spread the word about the assistance available, the PPA's "Help Is Here Express" buses continue to visit communities all over the country with trained specialists on board to provide information on how to access patient assistance programs. All 50 states and more than 2,500 towns and cities have been visited so far, and more than 5.5 million patients have been helped nationwide since the PPA began in April 2005.

"Millions of Americans have been added to the jobless rolls over the last several months and there could be a sharp increase in the number of our citizens losing health care benefits."

"PPA is currently helping thousands of people every day," Tauzin added, including those who need
